The Master Butchers at James Whelan Butchers have been busy elves lately, creating a selection of delectable Christmas offerings for you to enjoy at home. Each creation, freshly prepared in-store, will add to your Christmas feasts, and give you less time in the kitchen - and more with loved ones. 


Our Pancetta Lattice is a new addition to the James Whelan Christmas family - but one we’re sure you’ll fall for. Carefully handwoven from dry-cured Tipperary bacon, complemented by a spicy aroma of juniper berries, this lattice will adorn your Christmas Turkey and add a real wow moment when it reaches your dinner table. It’s also easy to use - simply peel from the gold card, place it on the turkey before it goes into the oven and voila! - a sumptuous, moist Christmas Turkey.


Pigs in Pancetta Blankets are another seasonal favourite - delicious cocktail sausages wrapped in dry-cured Tipperary pancetta. Like our lattice, these delights are oven-ready, making them the perfect prep-free Christmas dinner trimmings. You may be tempted to tell your guests you were up all night making them, but be careful, you could end up on the naughty list. 


Our Homemade Stuffing Pouch is quickly becoming a must-have at Christmas time, and while the family recipe is known by a select few, the taste is available to all. Our stuffing is lovingly handmade with breadcrumbs, herbs and fresh onions, melted through with rich Irish butter.


The elves have one final gift before Christmas - the secret ingredient to making the perfect Roast Potato. Multi-award-winning James Whelan Butchers Beef Dripping will elevate your plain roasties to divine crispy, golden roast potatoes. Be careful - they won't last long at the dinner table!
